The pit bull is a muscular breed with a large physique. Pit bulls require a special diet unlike other breeds in order to be healthy and at a proper weight. The food of a pit bull must be high in protein and fat since the dog burns the benefits of food so quickly as a result of their high energy level.
How to make pit bulls gain weight? Here are 5 Steps. Follow me step by step.
Step1: Check the pit bull for worms if it is not gaining weight. Take a fecal sample to the veterinarian to test for worms. If the dog has worms the vet will give you medicine for the dog. If the dog is worm-free, the nutritional level of the pit bull’s food may not be adequate.
Step2: Read the label on the bag of dog food. A pit bull needs a high-fat, high-protein diet that includes vitamins. The ingredients for adequate pit bull dog food must be human grade, meaning that the ingredients are rendered from high-quality meat, not animal parts.
Step3: Look for dog food brands with at least 30 percent protein and 20 percent fat. Do not exceed these percentages if a vitamin supplement is given. High-energy dog foods are meat-based not grain-based. There is more protein and fewer carbohydrates in high-energy dog foods.
Step4: Study the dog vitamin supplements available on the market. Vitamin supplements specifically made for the pit bull breed have high-quality proteins, trace minerals, essential fats and vitamins as well as omega-3 and omega-6.
Step5: Feed the dog twice a day. Give half the dog’s daily food allowance in the morning and half at night; when feeding incorporate the vitamin supplement into the dog’s food. Give a pit bull plenty of fresh clean water.
